In the last decade, when discussing subjects related to a computer modeling of induction heating, the word “usefulness” has been replaced by the word “necessity”. Modern computer simulation is capable of effectively simulating electromagnetic and thermal phenomena for many processes, including those that involve electromagnetic induction. Combination of a sophisticated engineering background with advanced process simulation software provides to induction heating professionals the unique ability to analyze, in few hours, complex technological processes. It offers the ability to predict how different, interrelated and non-linear factors may impact the transitional and final thermal conditions and what must be accomplished to improve process effectiveness, determine the most appropriate process recipes and serves as a comfort factor when designing new systems.
